In a partnership with Coorparoo Australian Football Club, Coorparoo Secondary College aims to provide male and
female students with the opportunity to develop their Australian Football ability and to aspire to an ‘elite’ level.
With the success of the AFL and AFLW concepts Australia wide, there is growing interest and local community
support for a program that provides Australian football coaching and targeted support for balancing academic,
sporting and career goals at the highest level. CSC is also promoting the development and preparation for students to undertake umpiring and officials training.

CSC Cubs – AFL team
Students from Year 7-12 are encouraged to try out for the College AFL program, the CSC Cubs. All groups, boys and girls, train on Monday and Wednesday afternoons from 3:45 to 5:00pm on our College AFL field. Teaching staff, Mr Cook, Mr Durand and Ms Grimes support the students in the development of their skills and game strategy. The program engages the students in fitness, skills/ drills and game play to be able to participate with confidence in a game format.
To be a CSC Cub, students are required to regularly participate in training sessions and pay a registration fee of $70, which covers the cost of the uniform, equipment and other game expenses. Students will compete against other schools during interschool sport and participate in other programs such as the AFLQ Schools' Cup.
CSC Cubs have the opportunity to learn about umpiring and once the course is successfully completed, this can provide an opportunity for part-time weekend work during the AFL season and assisting during the Primary School AFLQ cup competition.
The AFL program is a new initiative for 2019, which is already developing confidence and skills in all participating students.
Under the leadership of Mr Edwards, CSC competes in two separate weekly competitions in the Southern Districts competition. The two teams are the under 20s and the under 17s boys. Students pay a registration fee for each competition, which covers the cost of court hire, umpires' time and uniforms with the cost being approximately $10 a game. The boys train on Thursday afternoons from 3:00 to 4:30pm on the College basketball courts.
The CSC basketball team also competes in the Champion Basketball School of Queensland (CBSQ) tournament which is held in week 10 of Term 3 from Thursday to Sunday. Eligible students need to have met all other subject requirements prior to attending this competition.
New team members are always welcome, however commitment to training and participating in the set games is important as this is a team sport requiring a team effort.
